    Pros

    Great, top-notch people, both personally and professionally.
    Great culture, environmentally and socially conscious, with good work/life balance.
    Incredible training opportunities - more than you could ever take advantage of.
    Top-of-industry compensation: salary, bonus, RSUs, 401k match, and great benefits.

    Cons

    Limited potential for career advancement.
    Middle management can be over-reactive to every comment from CEO, without thoughtful prior analysis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in VCS Fabric - it's a revolutionary product. Keep investing in Software Defined Networkingf (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), e.g. OpenFlow and Vyatta. And stay focused on the data center. Brocade is already #2 in data center networking, and has a real shot at taking on Cisco.
